3.63/5  rDev -6.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a dark, almost cloudy amber into my Duvel tulip. A fluffy white head lingers and leaves beautiful lacing.

Smell: Looks like honey, smells like honey. There's also a pretty serious fruitiness to it, particularly as it warms.

Taste: The sweetness continues when the beer reaches the mouth. At first it almost seems too much, but some surprisingly aggressive hops (that I did not detect in the nose) quickly balance it out. Peppery notes from the yeast play around the edges, and it finishes clean and dry.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, medium carbonation.

Drinkability: Pretty high, which you wouldn't necessary expect given the big honey sweetness in the nose. The hops should allow it to stand up to more spicy foods that you wouldn't necessary think of pairing a tripel with.

4.2/5  rDev +7.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

From the stubby 330 ml bottle. Sampled on February 2, 2014.

The pour is an extremely heady cloudy pale yellow-bronze. The tremendous, puffy white head is three fingers thick and never really settles back.

Loads of Belgian toasted biscuit malt aroma with some butter, yeast, and a touch of citrus.

The body is wonderfully full and creamy.

The taste also brings out those Belgian malts with a bit or pear, butterscotch, toffee, and a clean, slightly hopped finish. But the sweet malts really save the day. A bolder Tripel than some.

3.65/5  rDev -6.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a hazy golden amber with an imposing white head that leaves a tremendous amount of lace as it slowly recedes.

S: Aromas of caramel, biscuit, cream, peach, apricot, oranges in syrup, lemon candy, herbs, and bread are present on the nose.

T: Notes of bread, yeast, biscuit, cream, caramel, toffee, herbs, oranges in syrup, grass, peach, apricot, lemon candy, and perhaps a touch of candy sugar wash across the palate. The finish is sweet and warming, with notes of orange, caramel, herbs, bread, and yeast are detectable before a long, smooth fade.

M: Thin in body and slick. Carbonation is airy and delicate. Alcohol is very subdued. Incredibly easy to drink, but in my opinion, this beer would be a better representation of the style if it had a bit more malt heft.

O: Not a bad tripel by any means, but also far from a classic example of the style. This one is worth seeking out at least once, but I have difficulty seeing it becoming a favorite or a regular for most fans of the style.

3.55/5  rDev -9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

On tap at Boneyard Bistro in Sherman Oaks, CA.

Pours a murky orange-brown with a foamy off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, honey, spice, fruit, and apple cider aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, yeast, and fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a nice fruity smell but the taste is more spice and yeast forward.

Serving type: on-tap
